THE CHILDREN OF MOTA SINGH & CONSUELO
Mota Singh's daughters
All that's left of Mota Singh's ranch
After 25 years of hard work, Mota's
American dream was coming true. His fortunes had grown with the
prosperity of Brawley, Imperial County's second largest town.
EMMA: "We lived north of Brawley on the Best Canal
road and Dad farmed that whole area there all the way to Rockwood
at one time with his brother, they were partners, who lived across
the street. Dad was always the one that kept the books...sometimes
if I looked over his shoulder and he was writing something in his
language, I'd ask him...
Life in Chihuahua: Consuelo, her daughters, and a relative
"What is this?" and he'd tell me what
letter that was. And if it was in summer, he
would [always] be under the desert water cooler there. That was
our time. And he used to lie down on the carpet and I would kind
of romp around him. He was heavy, so I thought it was great, you
know. He was like a large mountain there and I'd be all over him."
